Great breakfast and long list of specials.

Service wasn't great. Never got my water, but that's my only con. Pros --Good coffee - if I can drink it back it's a good cup! --Nice list of specials. --My husband and I shared the cinnamon raisin French toast off the regular menu. Excellent. Crispy crust.

Delicious breakfast. Funky place but fun. I really wanted pancakes but when they didn't have "real maple syrup" being a Vermonter I chose eggs Benedict. Great. My husband had banana pancakes and just ignored the lack of the good stuff. Would go again.

We visit Montauk 3-4 times a year and always visit at least once. The menu always has that something special that your not going to find at any breakfast place in Montauk. The specials menu always has a unique and plentiful selection. Definitely worth the trip.

Best breakfast in town. Hidden in the back off of main street this place has the nicest owners and staff and the best omelets in town. The pancakes are really good also.

Looking for a place in Montauk that has a great breakfast at a reasonable price this is it. Plenty of breakfast specials get there early because it gets crowded fast

Every year when we visit Montauk we try our best to get to the Bird on the Roof for breakfast as often as possible and we are always excited to not only have a great breakfast but also to see the family who own our favorite restaurant. This year we were excited to try two of the new specials! My... More

I've been eating here for years. Far better than any other breakfast choice in Montauk. Numerous menu choices plus a Selection Board of SPECIALS. Very creative and most important VERY good. The pancakes (regular, blueberry, banana, strawberry, chocolate chip etc) are second to none. You can hear the customers who've been there the first time say to each other, "this... More

I think we came on a very off day to Bird on the Roof because I have heard so many great things about the breakfast here! It is a very low key restaurant with maybe twenty tables on a covered patio and a plastic patio furniture kind of vibe. The prices are extremely low for Montauk so we were excited... More

We decided to try a new place other than Johns's pancake house. Big mistake. Based on the reviews bird on the roof was supposed to be better and tastier. We were surprised to find there wasn't a huge line. To make a long story short even in an empty restaurant we waited over an hour to get breakfast and once... More
